Try your hand at challenging math problems!
William Lowell Putnam Examination,
offered in early December of each year, is sponsored by the
Mathematical Association of America and is free and open to all
undergraduates, regardless of major.
In order to help students develop skills and strategies for
solving problems similar to those found on the Putnam Exam,
the FSU Mathematics Department is offering this 1-semester hour
Do not underestimate yourself. Even though the Putnam problems are very
challenging, you will notice that with some practise and persistence
you can solve much harder problems than you thought. Solving a challenging
math problem every once in a while gives a great feeling of satisfaction.
The team results and individual results will be sent to you by
the Putnam administration. Looks great on your resume.
Grading is (S/U) and is based on participation.
The instructor is dr. Mark van Hoeij.
The seminar is scheduled to meet once per week.
